The TRIO STEM-H Student Support Services Program is designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our mission is to provide valuable services to support the specific skills needed by students. Low income, first generation, and/or students with disabilities are welcome. You need to be pursuing a degree in science, technology, engineering, math, and health science.

STEM-H strives to be a comfortable environment where a diverse group of students can take advantage of comprehensive resources. The program maintains equality and dedication to fostering the success of all participants. This environment allows STEM-H participants to be successful in their academics, graduate, and excel in graduate school or a career.
